NGC Testing Services has a range of advanced equipment for the analysis, identification, and measurement of a wide range of materials. We offer the following facilities for analytical and physical property testing.
Analytical / Physical Test Standards
This test method provides a rapid means of determining the steady-state thermal transmission properties of thermal insulations and other materials.
These test methods cover the determination of water vapor transmission (WVT) of materials through which the passage of water vapor may be of importance, such as paper, plastic films, other sheet materials, fiberboards, gypsum and plaster products, wood products, and plastics.
NGC Testing Services Brochure
Over the past 55-plus years, we’ve run a lot of tests. Our NGC Testing Services brochure provides an overview of our company, our testing services and test capabilities, and a look into our facilities. Discover why NGC Testing Services is the best in test!
Analytical Testing Facilities
Uses x-ray beam diffraction to determine crystal structure.
- Composition of crystalline minerals such as:
gypsum, lime/calcite, quartz, crystalline clays
Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
Uses electron beam to provide high-resolution images of materials at high magnification.
- Surface details
- Particle size
Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS)
Attachment to the SEM to detect and map elements in the sample.
- Elemental composition
- Contaminant mapping
Determination of particle size distribution of the sample.
- Particle size distribution
- Quality control of powders
Uses infrared light to detect the presence of specific chemical groups.
- Organic components and contaminants
- Basic building blocks of chemicals
Uses weight loss to analyze moisture content.
For evaluating environmental conditions of:
Approximate mineral composition based on results from several methods.
- Mining samples/Drill cores
- Rock composition
- Inorganic based materials
